Clark was encouraged by friends to
begin designing professionally. Although she
had no intention of starting a business, her years
of gardening with her grandfather, along with
a drafting degree, combined to provide the perfect
platform for her new venture. Since then, Suzanne
has designed and built a plethora of landscapes,
each one perfected by listening to clients’ needs
and wants. As well as offering a full package from
design to completion, Pollinate also provides
a consultation service to assist clients in exploring
their garden’s potential.

features a collection of fruit trees, grasses and
coloured flowers, all based on lighter colours to
reflect the heat of the northern sun.

created using a traditional flemish bond style
of bricklaying with the header sitting proud.
Rainbow stone under the fire urn is continued
in a patch under the garden’s main focal point –
a rusted metal stag sculpture. Viewed from certain
Creating gardens as individual as the client, Pollinate Garden
Design knows how to deliver external spaces that invite you to stay.
